Award in recognition of commitment of voluntary activities

Since 2013, the principal shareholder of Vienna Insurance Group has awarded an award in recognition of commitment to voluntary activities to honour Group employees who volunteer their free time to help others in a special way. Nominations for this award are made by fellow employees, and a jury selects the winners from the many nominations submitted.

The jury chose ten impressive individuals from Austria and the CEE region in 2016. Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein invited these unsung heroes of the Group to a ceremony in the Vienna headquarters, the Ringturm building, to honour them for their outstanding service. The winners also enjoyed a pre-Christmas weekend in Vienna with a busy programme of cultural events.
